Interactive fiction at the Computer History Museum

Interactive fiction at the Computer History Museum

Way back in March 2011, Juiced.GS‘s cover story about Leadlight and interactive fiction featured a photograph by Brian Wiser. Taken at the Computer History Museum on January 26, 2011, the photo showcased the museum’s prominent display of classic text adventures, demonstrating the genre’s lasting appeal and importance in the history of computing.

While you can buy that article and many more in our PDF of text adventure stories, we decided that wasn’t enough. We recently got back in touch with Wiser, and he generously shared additional photos of Infocom’s display from that trip. The following images are copyrighted by Wiser and are presented here with his permission.
